West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said she would not like to comment on criticism from a "small kid" while referring to allegations leveled by Congress president Rahul Gandhi against her government.

Responding to reporters on Rahul’s criticism of her government during his election rallies, Banerjee dismissed all allegations and said she doesn’t want to react to his charges.

"He (Gandhi) has said whatever he felt like. I don't like to make any comment on it. He is just a kid. What will I say about it?" Banerjee said.

Four days ago, 48-year-old Gandhi had launched a stinging attack against the Trinamool Congress government for not fulfilling the promises made to the people.

“Bengal is being run by just one person. She neither talks to anyone nor takes anybody's suggestion. She does whatever she feels like,” Gandhi had said. He had further said, “Tell me what has Mamataji done for you. Nothing has been done for the farmers and youth. There is unemployment everywhere. Only Mamataji’s speeches go on all day long.”

The Congress and the Trinamool Congress share a strained relationship in the state after fighting the 2011 polls together and uprooting the 34-year-old Left Front regime.

Although the Congress has shared the stage with the TMC at the national level, in Bengal it has maintained a distance with Banerjee's party, which was born out of it in 1998.
